Why You NEED YouTube

  • Hate Cold Calling?

    Me too. I don't call FSBO's or Expireds, I don't beg my sphere for referrals, and I don't pass out my card to 100 people a week. Learn how to ATTRACT clients to you in a way that's actually fun!

  • Want More Market Share?

    Video can quickly establish you as a local expert. You'll learn how to create YouTube videos with a plan, a schedule, and a strategy. And it's really fun to get recognized at the grocery store!

  • Want Your Phone to Ring?

    Imagine receiving calls from prospects who are thrilled when you pick up the phone to talk to them! They feel like YOU'RE doing THEM a favor by agreeing to represent them. What a refreshing change!

There has never been a better time to dominate your market with video


People are home, spending all day online looking for information and entertainment.

You have a choice - do you want to retreat and wait it out?

Or do you want to spend this downtime making video content? Because the more videos you can put out into the world now, the more you will be found by potential clients when this craziness is all over.
